Public Comments for the P&T Committee:

Public comment that responds to the materials presented by the Pharmacotherapy Outcomes Research Center at the Universityof Utah is most helpful. The foundation documents used for most reviews are prepared by the University of Utah, College of Pharmacy, and are posted on the P&T Committee website after the meeting. Manufacturers wishing to submit any additional materials they would like reviewed as part of the process to:

Joanne LaFleur, PharmD, MSPH
Professor and Director
Pharmacotherapy Outcomes Research Center
University of Utah College of Pharmacy
30 South 2000 East Room 4922
Salt Lake City, UT 84112

All materials must be clearly labeled that they are submitted for consideration as part of the State of Utah Medicaid Preferred Drug List Program review process. Materials must be received at least 60 days before the scheduled review date. Materials most useful to support the evidence-based process include any new evidence (information from clinical trials or studies when possible), unpublished materials the company would like considered as part of the process, or any other materials not likely to be included in a literature search.

Persons who wish to address the P&T Committee may contact Utah Medicaid by email, at medicaidpharmacy@utah.gov at least 7 calendar days prior to the meeting. Public comments will be limited to 3 minutes per speaker or organization due to time constraints.
